Dave Zito is a managing director and practice leader of the Healthcare practice. With more than 30 years of management consulting experience collaborating with integrated healthcare systems, public and private teaching institutions, academic medical centers, faculty practice plans, and community hospitals, his expertise lies in system reconfiguration, performance improvement, cost reduction, and post-merger integration.
In light of the anticipated shift to value-based care, much of Zito's recent work has been focused on strategic repositioning of assets — helping organizations determine how they want to position themselves in the market and how they want to compete in the changing reimbursement environment. In addition, he is supporting healthcare executives as they assess where to best position their organizations on the risk continuum and in implementing a risk strategy.
Under his leadership, Zito has grown the Healthcare practice to include over 450 consultants and 2,400 business process outsourcing professionals. The practice is now ranked among the leading healthcare management consulting firms in the nation.
Prior to joining Navigant, Zito spent a decade at Cap Gemini Ernst & Young’s Healthcare Consulting practice as a vice president and head of operations and strategy.
